Sunday July 3, Denmark hosts the third and final stage of the Tour de France. A hilly course of 182 km which ends with a sprint, under the already conquered gaze of the Danes, contaminated by the magic of the Grande Boucle.

The joys of the Tour de France and the passage of the caravan. For the first time, the inhabitants of Veijle, in the west of Denmark, are enjoying the atmosphere of the peloton. “We love cycling, so it’s important to be there. It’s the first time here”enthuses a Danish woman. “It gives a great image of Denmark, in the most beautiful way“, adds a local. On the balcony or on the side of the road, the event is experienced with the family.

Denmark vibrates to the rhythm of the Tour, in Copenhagen, but above all across the country. The crowd, huge and vertiginous, screams as the Danish runners pass. On the French side, cyclists savor this unique fervor. “It was crazy, honestly it was almost deafening, we couldn’t hear each other in the peloton“, says Pierre Rolland, B&B Hotels KTM rider. On Sunday July 3 in the afternoon, an entire country will celebrate this third stage, the end of a sensational Scandinavian parenthesis.
